“A Score to Settle” – Flickering Myth

Nicolas Cage has a new action thriller on the way called A Score To Settle.

Directed by Beautiful Boy’s Shawn Ku, the film will see Cage as a mob enforcer exacting vengeance on the people who put him in jail and is being produced by Lee Clay and Eric Gozlan.

Cage plays Frank, a mob enforcer who is battling a terminal illness and is released from jail. However, he went to jail for a crime he didn’t even commit. Now freed, he embarks on a quest to get revenge on the people who placed him in jail before his illness overtakes him.

It sounds just like the type of film you’d expect Nicolas Cage to make. No word on when this will begin production, or when we can expect it to release.
